The lawless era in Deadwood is coming to an end. As the town's first elections approach, strategic alliances that protect hard-earned interests become more critical than ever. Facing down an unexpected threat from one powerful man aiming to reshape the town in his image, the founders must put up their strongest fronts if they expect to thrive — and survive. A new chapter begins in Season 3 of the award-winning HBO drama series that focuses on the evolution of an American frontier town, and the ruthless power struggle between its inhabitants. The settlers introduced in Seasons 1 and 2 — including now-sheriff Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant) and saloon owner Al Swearengen (Golden Globe® Award-winner Ian McShane) — continue to share a restlessness of spirit, heightened by the influx of ambitious new residents, in particular George Hearst, a tycoon with a lust for gold . . . and absolute power.
